Easter is coming. In case you share my holiday confusion which seems to be wide spread in multi-national workplaces, Easter is an official holiday in Canada, it is not in the USA, it is in Germany, and (as my husband informs me for quite obscure reasons) it is not in Rumania. Feel free to add your observances.
Just to remind you what Easter is about: it's the time of the year when the bunnies lay eggs, and we sacrifice the last chocolate Santa-Claus, which will be reborn on Easter Monday. It's the time of the year when German Rabbis argue with the Pope about the wording of prayers and other nations spray-paint chickens. It's the time of the year when the stores have to rearrange their seasonal event's section to make place for Mother's day, and kids put the chocolate eggs under the sofa pillows, so watch out.
Here in Waterloo, we still have snow but it's slowly melting. Yesterday I got caught between a remaining 2m snowbarrier and a potholy street with muddy puddles. An approaching bus managed to produce a very impressive wall of dirty ice-water that soaked my clothes from head to the toes. Spring is coming! And it's about time cause I accidentally threw one of my last gloves down the garbage chute. However, I just talked to my neighbor who informs me his father is a meteorologist and (blahblahblahblah) it will apparently remain below zero around here for at least the next two weeks.
A very happy Easter to all of our readers :-)
